if we would redefine universe to be the place in infinite space where all the stuff is, and assume it to be an spherical ofject of 4.54128 to the 27th power meters in radius, with a mass of 4 to the 52nd power killograms it would have an escape velocity of 2 times the speed of light. therefore; anything that goes up at the speed of light comes back down at the speed of light, and the universe need not be expanding or contracting and many other observations interpretations of data and such would also have to be changed. such a universe could not form from a big bang.
